Last weekend I discovered camping at Fort Stevens State Park. The 3,700 park includes beach access, a lake, historical sites, and even a real life shipwreck.
But the top attraction by far is the fabulous network of dedicated bike paths that connect all of the above.
You can literally go everywhere by bike and the result is that everyone does...and I mean everyone. I was astounded at the amount of people riding around. It was like being in a bikey utopia where no one was afraid of cars and people of all ages rode their bikes with reckless abandon.
As we rode around I made believe that each destination was another part of the city and smiled at the thought of having a connected network like this in Portland. A guy can dream can't he?!
